Our Place is an American musical variety show that aired on CBS during the summer of 1967. The official host was one of Jim Henson's early puppets Rowlf the Dog. The show's other regulars were comedians Jack Burns and Avery Schreiber and the singing Doodletown Pipers.[1]

Overview[edit]

Our Place, a summer replacement for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, debuted on July 2, 1967.[2] The first episode featured Carol Burnett as guest star. Burnett portrayed an anti-love protest marcher and a singer who couldn't spell, which created problems when she tried to perform Oklahoma and Mother. Musical numbers included a straight performance of Stormy Weather by Burnett. The Doodletown Pipers performed "Up, Up and Away", "Hang On Sloopy", "Georgy Girl", "A Hard Day's Night", "Feeling Good", "California Dreamin'" and "Our Place".[1]

The last telecast of Our Place was on September 3, 1967.[2]
